Jeffrey Van Camp:
The biggest realization came for me when I turned on my MacBook
Air after a week. (I had to because I needed to take a Skype
call.) It was so … fast. And I could use every Chat service I
wanted. And the battery life was much better than the Pixel. And
it was so much lighter. And I could run the full version of
Spotify. And I could open iTunes. And I could edit Microsoft
Office documents without a lengthy conversion process. And I could
use Dropbox. And it didn’t slow down for me. And, best of all, I
could use the Chrome browser, and every Chrome app I had
installed, on my Mac. It was wonderful and such a relief to not
have to think about what I couldn’t do, or worry if my next email
attachment will open or not.
My favorite bit is this update:
Some readers say I’ve expected too much out of Chrome, but wanting
to edit some documents, chat outside a browser window, and use
common services is not excessive.
How can someone “expect too much” from a $1,450 notebook?
